Thanks for ordering!
As I’m sure many of you know, the reputation for WECO BBQ is somewhat of a local legend. What started as a half-baked idea for pulled pork and mac and cheese turned into a phenomenon. I’m not surprised, cause it is fantastic. It is funny to me though, how I can try to put a bunch of cool stuff on the menu each week, but BBQ is always the most popular by a long shot! I’m not insulted, but I am looking for the next “BBQ”. I love to hear your ideas, so shoot us a message if there’s something you really want to see on the menu next week! I have plenty of options, but I’m looking for a real “crowd pleaser” 🙂 Let me know! In the meantime…
Get in there!
For the pulled pork:
I’d recommend baking this in the oven today. Probably at 400F for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes I’ll have you heat it up on the stove, which is fine, but I made some really thick BBQ sauce and I’m worried it will scorch in a pot. If I were you, I’d heat up the pork and mac and cheese on the same tray, so all those juices can have a party in the oven 🙂
For the mac and cheese:
Like I said, pretty good idea to warm the mac and cheese and the pork on the same tray, but if you have picky eaters or don’t want to mix things up, a separate tray will suffice. Scoop out the mac and cheese, sprinkle some garlic panko on top, and bake at 400F till the panko becomes toasted and golden brown.
For the slaw:
I am so tempted to divulge the secret ingredients for this magical coleslaw, but I can’t bring myself to give it up! Perhaps you will guess? Maybe the mystery is what makes it so fun for you- I know that’s the case for me whenever I try something that I don’t know how to make. Anyway, dig right into the slaw. Taste the magic 🙂
For the cornbread:
This recipe, which I developed in my house at the beginning of the pandemic, has followed WECO for months. It’s a workhorse. This version is simple, plain cornbread soaked in maple butter, but it’s by far my favorite. Griddle it up in a pan with some butter to unlock its true potential, and try a BBQ pulled pork sandwich on cornbread…
